Why should I go broke paying taxes so that some Union teacher can keep her job,
Down we go, spiraling into deficit like never before, businesses closing or moving out of California, and their answer is to raise taxes. How bout you stop paying the outrageous benefits to Union members? It's unsustainable!

Yes! Damn those super-rich union teachers! Their highfalutin lifestyles are destroying America. But they don't care; up there in their giant mansions and castles...

Unions and public unions aren't the same.
Government employees are servants who serve - they should not have Unions. If they don't want to serve, then they can quit and someone will take their place. If they want to be in a Union, there is always the productive private sector.
Why should I go broke paying taxes so that some Union teacher can keep her job, continue to receive raises and full benefits while the private sector is dying off, and the private sector people continue to lose their jobs?

Yes the state of the economy is the fault of teacher's unions as opposed to the fault of the politicians who have been bought and paid for by corporate and banker interests years ago. C'mon people.
